It´s a big and very special day for Ritförlaget today. Jakob´s book is out! The book is the fourth in the history of my small publishing house Ritförlaget and the first book not made by me. Teckningar från Antarktis (Drawings from the Antarctic) is a wonderful illustrated journal from Jakob´s expedition to the South Pole in 2007/2008. The Swedish icebreaker Oden sailed to Antarctica for the second time ever and Jakob was on board thanks to the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat that since 1988 has offered artists to participate in research expeditions to the polar regions. (Read about the artists programme here!) Teckningar från Antarktis contains killer whales! Leopard seals! Tattoos! Stinking sperm whale bones! And of course; icebergs and penguins! 64 pages, colour, hard cover with textile backstrip. Text is in Swedish, but all the beautiful illustration makes the book interesting even without the words.
